Christ is our law, sin and death

“So then, while Christ is the law, He is also liberty: while He is sin (for ‘He was made sin for us’), He is righteousness: and while He is death, He is life.
For in that He suffered the law to accuse Him, sin to condemn Him, and death to devour Him, He abolished the law, He condemned sin, He destroyed death, He justified and saved me.”

- Martin Luther, Commentary on Galatians (Grand Rapids, MI: Kregel Classics, 1979), 86.


I think I'd want to say "abolished the law's accusations" rather than "abolished the law"!
